Today marks the birth of the Exalted Salvation Show, a totally private exposition that’s not for the public eye. Throughout this show, there will be heart-pumping, blood-rushing sensations. Tingling of appendages and extremities. Delusions of existing in an ethereal space. Wishing time will stop and the Earth will stand still.
And almost everyday, there will be a new blog entry. The entry will touch on something I happen to be thinking about at that particular moment. I try to make my entries profound, but at press time I’m only a 19-year-old university student going through exams. This isn’t a professional log book. It’s just a space for me to pour out grand ideas and epic schemes.
One thing people will know about me, once they do take the effort to get to know me, is that I love schedules. I thrive on plans, especially those made by myself. I love making plans as much as following them, and therefore it comes as no surprise that I’ve already set out a plan for the entries that I’ll be presenting here! Allow me to share them with you, dear anonymous unseen reader, so you know what to expect when you visit everyday.
Mondays: Belly of a Bookworm
The Exalted Salvation used to be quite the literary girl. I read a lot and wrote a lot on any scrap paper I could find. Over the years, my reading volume exponentially decreased and my writing moved to the computer — in the form of roleplaying! I still try to write/roleplay a bit now and then, but I feel that my literariness — what had been the source of strength in my early life — is gradually seeping away from me. I must hold onto the core of my existence and not betray what had been my childhood comfort! And so, one way to remain in tune with the writer in me is to write about it. I may not be the most veteran author or reader around, but I believe I have enough experience to gush about my childhood passion, simply as an avid fan of literature.
No blog is complete without a pop culture reference, and the only link Exalted Salvation has with pop culture is through the sub-culture of otaku! There is no lack of things to talk about anime, and I shall extend this section to my limited knowledge of Japanese culture as well. For the goshujin-sama and ojou-sama out there, please look forward to this! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!
Wednesdays: Musing About Music
Now I’m not really a musician. Music was completely foreign to me before I was introduced to my first favourite song in Colors of the Heart by UVERworld, back when I was in Sec 3. That would be about 15 years old or thereabouts? Nevertheless, I do have my own musical preferences, no matter how limited they may be. This will hopefully encourage me to listen to the radio more, thereby picking up more songs to talk about.
Thursdays: The World At Large
I love the world. I love meeting new friends from all over the world. Perhaps the friends I meet are more important than any roleplaying I ever do on my roleplaying forums. I can’t say I keep in close contact with many of them, neither have I met even one-fifth or one-tenth of the people that represent each country. But what is important from these experiences is not the quantity but the quality of what you learn. I feel that it’s helped me develop a broader perspective of life and the world out there. My international friends are just as precious to me as the friends I have that are closer to home. And I hope I can try to express the wonders and amazement of a global viewpoint in my entries.
Fridays: Logging Online
You know, like Sword Art Online and Alfheim Online, except Logging Online? Heh heh heh. Nah I thought it up on the spot. Logging Online is about computers! Computers, technology, games, everything on the internet that I can get my hands on. The best places to go if you want to download viruses (no I’m kidding, we all know to go to porn sites).
Saturdays: Piercing Minds and Stabbing Souls
The mind is capable of great miracles. In fact, it’s arguably in charge of everything. The body’s just a tool for the brain. The heart beats because the brain asks it to. Hands and legs move in accordance to the brain. We love because of hormones regulated by the brain. Our life is the result of that marvellous mass of wrinkly tofu! I’ve got to write about it, because my brain’s telling me to do so!
Sundays: Whatever The Crap I Feel Like
For example? This entry. Sundays is reserved for when I have something really pressing to write. So most Sundays I’ll live up to the purpose of its creation — rest.
And so, first entry will be added tomorrow. Stay tuned!
